This Week on TCM:
At 8pm is FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT (1940) with Joel McCrea in a lesser known Hitchcock film. It's not as well regarded as it should be and features a cast that includes George Sanders. A hidden gem.
At 330 am (set your DVR) on Tuesday night/Wed Morning is GRAND HOTEL (1932) which is a star studded MGM drama worth your time about life in a, well, grand hotel in Berlin before things in Berlin got a bit shaky.
Wednesday at 945am is DESPERATE JOURNEY (1942) which is a buddy film before they had buddy films. Errol Flynn leads a band of well known Warner Bros players like Alan Hale into a daring raid against the Nazi's. These WWII Programmer's were designed to rally the folks back home and can be a lot of fun.
Thursday at 915am is PUBLIC ENEMY (1931) which is the movie that launched Jimmy Cagney's career as a gangster for Warner Brothers.
Saturday's ESSENTIALS is WAIT UNTIL DARK (1967) starring Audrey Hepburn as a young wife whose blindness just might get her murdered. Great suspense film featuring Alan Arkin as a deranged killer. You can't go wrong with THE ESSENTIALS hosted by Robert Osborne and Alec Baldwin and this week they got it right so it's my CAN'T MISS choice.
